You need to build your coaching skills and your ability to help all kinds of clients, from the inside out. Make sure you spend some time every week — every day is ideal — honing your skills as a coach or working on your own beliefs and personal outlook on life. One of the best ways to do this is to hire a coach. Coaches need coaching too!
A great leader will affirm that someone has a great idea, or validate the dream of accomplishment, or plant a seed to nurture; they will support, steer, and nourish. Next is the ability to provide empowerment to employees. Great leaders don’t really empower others, as people can only empower themselves, what they do is relinquish power and provide the opportunity for the employee to assume it. Great leaders understand that they don’t have all the answers, they understand that collaboration is the key to success, and they understand that a more equitable power dynamic is necessary to have continuous movement forward. The next attribute in a great leader is integrity.
“Sports are a tool to learn life’s great lessons” or “a coach 's job is to learn how to love his/her athlete equally” are great examples/ goals to achieve, but sometimes these are the hardest things to do and it doesn’t work out as well as you expect it to be. Some athlete seriously considers to quit a sport that they are really talented in and could make a living out of, because of their most closest people like their parents or coaches. While I was reading through “The Power of a Coach” section of the book what I noticed was that some of the events that happened in the book, happened to me and my close friends as well. Some of the events happened during my soccer practices and some happened to me during track practices.
Strengths and Weaknesses In the process of professional practice, I realized that my strength is working hard. Whenever I get a task from my boss, I would not stop working until it is done. Hard working is the best and surest way to arrive to goals and it can help me to complete the work in a given time. Another strength is the problem solving ability, which enables me to recognize the problem, analyze the relevant information, understand reasons and impact relationships and choose the best solution to solve the problem.
According to Tracy Huber (2008, 1) “A teacher’s most essential job is to help students gain and retain knowledge —to take true ownership of what they have learned.” Through this quote we can interpret that learners need support such as concrete manipulatives to perform the necessary task in order to grasp the concepts. However concrete manipulatives have an important part to play in a learners schooling life especially towards maths. In my essay below I will explain the conceptual and procedural knowledge, the history of manipulatives, my understanding of concrete manipulatives, ways in which manipulatives can support students, how manipulatives help students gain conceptual knowledge and how a grade 3 teacher can teach Cuisenaire rods in equivalent
In this article “ Philosophy of coaching” by Ken McGlothlin he goes in brief details about how to be a good coach , how to implement a good coaching philosophy that could help you win , and the preparation it takes to be a good coach. Coaching is more than just telling players what to do , it's a difficult task that takes effort, time, and patience. Kern McGlothin states that “Coaches, today, must be good teachers and must motivate their players to compete day by day on the court.” coaching is more than just having a philosophy, it's being able to teach and having an open mind about ideas .
Communication is a central component of coaching and is “the act of expressing ideas, information, knowledge and feelings, as well as understanding what is expressed by others”. (reference) Chhikara (2013) suggests that “the success of any coach at every level of competition, is determined by his or her ability to effectively communicate with their athlete(s)”. Communication is essential for coaches to teach new skills, correct faults or solve problems, which is why it is important for coaches to have effective communication skills. Communication can be both verbal and non-verbal; Coaches communicate many of their messages through their voice, actions, facial expressions and body language.

As a coach, I believe that coaching is “unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them” which was stated by John Whitman. I agree with this quote because as a coach I want to do what is best for each player individually. Therefore, I stress the importance of accountability, punctuality, discipline, but most importantly great sportsmanship. Every action or reaction of each person affects the entire team.
This is the most commonly observed and practiced action logic transition among business people and those in management and executive education. It is also the one most successfully addressed at present. The major development tailback in organization is in transforming those who have had expert success in their field, and who have on this basis been promoted into managerial and leadership responsibilities that tear them away from work they love. Mentors need to help those in this transition, to move their dominant focus from current problem resolution to focus on future goals and how to achieve
It is not possible for a person to live a full life without making mistakes. According to Gallozzi (2013) people can learn very important and valuable lessons from their past mistakes. He goes on to say it is important to look back and monitor one’s experience as one can be able to adjust their course of action. He also agrees that reflective learning help one to start settling on better choices, figure out how to grasp elective blueprints and take advantage of inner
“A coaching philosophy is vital for long term success to meet the challenges of preparing athletes to do their best” (Smelley, 2013) A philosophy is a statement of intention which explores the key concepts of axiology, ontology, epistemology and pedagogy. The first concept of axiology examines an individual 's principles, ethics, morals and values developed personally through experiences and surroundings. How a coach is able to channel these notions that could have a significant effect on their athletes and their ability as a coach.

Coaches tend to live beneath a false sense of security that their only responsibility is to further the athletic capabilities if their players both individually, and collectively. This thought that coaches have no obligation to defend their athletes’ mental, and physical safety is absurd. Coaches are not simply caretakers of players, but of people, and therefore hold a moral and legal duty to create a safe environment of play, in order to prevent, and protect their athletes from serious head trauma, or other sports related injuries. Many believe that it is solely medical professionals’ jobs to keep athletes safe, while the majority of sports-world believes that this responsibility is shared among multiple different influences in
